BACKGROUND Increasing weight in relation to total diameter of implanted titanium elastic nails has been found to be significantly associated with increasing sagittal angulation. However, the biomechanical literature has not well established the load at which failure of titanium elastic nails in the sagittal and coronal planes occurs. The purpose of this study was to determine load to failure in sagittal and coronal plane bending of transverse midshaft femur fractures stabilized with titanium… CONTINUE READING
